Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Our volunteers work throughout East Tennessee with our Meet and Greets in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Johnson City. We touch into KY, VA, GA & AL.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are an all volunteer adoption group which became a reality in June 2000. We successfully obtained our non profit status and have worked extremely hard with our focus on helping Greyhounds find loving homes. We work with many groups and send referrals anytime we get inquiries out of our area.

We are supporting a prison program through donations and fundraisers which helps more Greyhounds adjust while also helping the inmates find a purpose and make a commitment. We supply supervised training, all medical needs, all needed supplies and a professional trainer.

Greyhound Rescue Foundation of Tennessee has grown but we are still a close Greyhound family. We follow-up with and support all our adopters.

We are fairly small but makeup for it with our determination.

If you are located in or around East Tennessee, the boarders in KY, AL and GA check us out at www.greyoundrescue.org

We are a 501c3 and gladly accept donations. We are a all volunteer group so all the donations will go for the care of the X-Racing Greyhounds.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
